"I just finished this book and wow! I now see why this is so popular. This book was AMAZING! I couldn’t put it down. 10/10 I did have a question about “Erika chapter 1” I honestly didn’t read it because it sounded like a to totally different storyline, but I didn’t get why it was in the book? Can anyone explain that last chapter please? "
"Woah 😳. This book is just...woah. I feel like I have no words but I have alot to say. The character development for Ryen and Misha is just amazing! Their chemistry is so spot on. At some moments I wanted to cry, my jaw dropped at other moments. I did not see the twist(s) coming in this book(even though I probably should have at least for one of them).This is probably my favorite book so far from Penelope Douglas. I really enjoyed this one!"
"I tried to like this book. At first, I found the setting intriguing, but the more I read, the more shallow characters became for me. It really feels like reading some sort of bad fanfiction, not a book. Everybody's horrible, 90% of characters are trash, they have no redeeming traits whatsoever, and it's only Misha and Ryen who are "I-am-not-like-other-people" (btw, yeah they are). It felt childish. Besides, I disliked there was too much emphasis on sex; nearly half a book is about it."
"The character development in this book is amazing. It can be a tough read at first with how the main character interact with eachother, but they really grow through out the story. It also is a great story in terms of talking about being your own person and not worrying how others see you. ALSO, enemies to lovers people, the spice is a 10/10 🌶🌶🌶🌶🥵#romance #smutromance #enemiestolovers "
"Um, riverdale except spice and brooding? I get why people might like this book, but it just didn’t click for me. Misha felt very stiff and blank, like his only purpose was to be the cliche bad boy. The mc ended up being someone I genuinely disliked, and made terribly choices. I liked the epilogue more than the entire book :/"
